Stone Faces by Brent A. Harris (Note: This story does not tie in to the events of A Time of Need, despite similarities.) The lime-green school bus squealed as it slowed along the circular drive reserved for field trips and tours. Rattling, the bus hissed to a halt on the cracked concrete. Gaius lurched in […]
While our website hasn’t reflected it, we have made many changes and updates coming into the new year. We are working on some exciting projects and humming along here behind the scenes. We are starting strong this year by having four books in various stages of production as we hit the new year, and we […]

Almost every author we have spoken to asks this question, and it’s a valid one. In today’s world of self-publishing authors have been provided unprecedented access to powerful tools which allow them to cut out the middle man and go straight to print. This has led to an industry revolution where it is a common philosophy that publishers are a dinosaur that will (and some think should) go extinct.

Authors are like a tray of cupcakes. Delicious, decadent, sinful, and everyone wants them. (And they add pounds if you eat them, but who’s counting?)

However the reality is that we cannot eat all the cupcakes alone. Nor should we try to!
